Evicted by Greed: Visiting the Invisible citytour
A Berlin City Tour to Anonymous and Aggressive Real Estate Investors
Sunday, May 31 · 2020 · 17.00-18.30 · On streaming
Future outdoor tours will be announced, and those who booked spots for March will be first in line.
LIVE WITH CHRISTOPH TRAUTVETTER (EXPERT ON TAX JUSTICE AND MONEY LAUNDERING, NETZWERK STEUERGERECHTIGKEIT AND WEM GEHÖRT BERLIN, DE).
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ROSA-LUXEMBURG STIFTUNG.
On our virtual stroll from Potsdamer Platz into Kreuzberg – one of Berlin’s most popular and dynamic neighborhoods – we’ll discover houses that are owned by anonymous investors and hear the stories they have to tell about how those investors hide their identity, maximise their profits – often at the cost of the inhabitants – and how they avoid taxes and many other forms of regulation. We’ll also learn about some colourful examples of alternative approaches to house ownership, and get to know the neighborhood.
The tour draws on the findings of the project “Wem gehört die Stadt” of the Rosa-Luxemburg Stiftung, including recent and forthcoming studies on the ownership structure of Berlin with data collected from various groups. The participants of the tour will receive a small guidebook that contains further information on the investors behind the visited houses.
The tour is in partnership with Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung and is part of Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
